Pamela Fandrich Bio:
Pam was born and raised on a small country farm outside the town of Beulah, in western North Dakota. Her love of the outdoors was inspired her surroundings: Lake Sakakawea, the Badlands, and wildlife. Her mother strongly encouraged Pam in her early years to paint and draw. This influence of her parents and friends joined her fascination for nature and she’s been painting and drawing ever since.
Pam moved to the Phoenix Arizona area in 1986.
Her career in the airlines not only allows her time to paint, but also the opportunity to see, experience, and study many different cultures. Many of her works are inspired by her international travel abroad in places such as Greece, France and Italy.
In 2001 Pam started her own business painting on canvas, murals and web site development. She also works for six model home companies in the Phoenix and California area, creating murals for model homes and builders.
She is a member of the Scottsdale Art League and Arizona Art Alliance and often participates in regional shows and events.
Recently at the annual Desert Botanical Garden Show and Paintout Pam won 1st and 2nd place awards for “Artist of the Month”.
Pam’s favorite subjects to paint are: animals, wine bottles, flowers, portraits, seascapes and landscapes. Oil and acrylic paint are her mediums of choice. Typically she prefers to put three to seven coats of paint on her canvas (using a technique many of the old masters used), and thus has quite a few projects working at one time. She is available for commission pieces.
